I want to be healthy. I want my family to be healthy. I want the world to be healthier. I want to feel good. I want to be able to play sports with my kids, to be sick less and live a long, full life. I want this for me, I want this for my … Continue reading Your health matters.
My mamas will get this reference, dads you might too. Do y’all ever feel like 'sadness' from the movie Inside Out? “Obsessing over the weight of life’s problems.” The burden of your 9-5 job that you hate, the piles of laundry yet to be folded, the house yet to be cleaned, the broken dishwasher you … Continue reading Choose Joy.
2020 is Not what you expected.
I think we can all admit that the last few months have been well, unexpected. No one expected a global pandemic that would force us to hibernate in our homes for the unforeseeable future. No one expected to have to homeschool their children while trying to maintain their own jobs. No one expected to be … Continue reading 2020 is Not what you expected.

It’s ok to not be ok.
Life isn't perfect, but social media will tell us otherwise. Fame, fortune, the picture of perfection, this is something we see on our news-feeds daily... I think deep down we know that's not real life, but something inside of us wants that regardless if it is attainable or not. We feel guilty for not being … Continue reading It’s ok to not be ok.
